ARBS 2020 is already surpassing all previous size records in Melbourne and is on track to equal the exhibitor turnout of the 2018 show in Sydney. The exhibition organisers have just increased the floor area for the 2020 show by 1500m2, taking the total space to 18,000m2 – a new record for Melbourne.
ARBS is Australia’s only HVAC+R and building services exhibition, and biannual show alternates between the two venues.
The increased demand for space has come from several long-term exhibitors looking to make a bigger impact at the Melbourne show with bigger stands. These include Daikin Australia, Beijer Ref Australia/Kirby, Temperzone, Airefrig Australia, Mitsubishi Electric Australia and Panasonic
Indeed Kirby and Beijer Ref Australia, who are hosting the largest stand at 297m2, are planning a “showstopper presence” at the exhibition. Furthermore, Kirby Marketing Manager, Brett Hedge, says: “Our greatest strength lies in our people and they will be ready and eager to discuss our equipment and service offers.”
According to Exhibition Manager, Sue Falcke: “ARBS truly is a product of its participants. Most of our exhibitors have been supporting ARBS since its inception in 1998 largely because they know ARBS presents a fantastic opportunity for exhibitors to communicate to the industry and their customers and to demonstrate their new technologies. Exhibitors at ARBS are finding more unique and inventive ways to broadcast their product and service offerings with stands for the 2020 exhibition already scaling new size barriers,” Falcke adds.
The exhibition will open at the Melbourne Conference and Exhibition Centre on 19th May 2020 and will run over three full days affording visitors plenty of time to browse the exhibition and catch up on the latest developments.
Visitors to ARBS 2020 can also attend events such as the highly anticipated Speaker Series and IBTech Insight Series and celebrate the talent which sustains the industry at the ARBS Industry Awards Gala Dinner.
